Welcome to Edward Tsang's Home Page

I am a professor in School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex. I am the Director of the Centre for Computational Finance and Economic Agents (CCFEA) which I co-founded in 2002.

I have broad research interest in applied artificial intelligence. My research can roughly be grouped into two overlapping areas: constraint satisfaction and computational finance and economics. Click <here> for my research home page.

I am a member of IEEE. I actively participate in its Computational Finance and Economics Technical Committee (CFETC), under the Computational Intelligence Society.
